Mayoral STEAMhouse Challenge – Clean Air, Green Future


The urgent challenge is to address its impact while prioritising understanding for implementing common solutions i.e. clean energy with innovative clean, green smart technologies and transport. Complementing this is the imperative for energy, water and other material resource efficiency , saving money and creating new local business and jobs, including addressing fuel poverty.
This conference and STEAMlab seeks to bring together a range of key public, private and third sector stakeholders with knowledge and commitment to collaborate for accelerating wider public understanding and engagement in delivering solutions, benefiting health and sustainability for all our region.
The West Midlands Mayor’s Clean-Green Future Challenge will address the increasing number of issues related to local atmospheric and global greenhouse pollution providing workshop opportunity to share and define ground-breaking initiatives

The Conference day, the 20th June, will include talks from keynote speakers and the STEAMlab which takes place on the 21st June is where we get hacking and tackle the challenge! You can sign up for just one of the days but it is strongly recommended to sign up for both days .

We highly recommend registering for the ‘Conference and STEAMlab’ ticket.
What is a STEAMlab?

A STEAMlab is a hack-style event in which we bring individuals and companies together to collaborate and work together to find creative solutions to a real problem faced by another business. Exploring the areas from the conference day will be the focus in this STEAMlab.
Why? We believe that by working with peers from different industries, with different skillsets, we will be able to combine our knowledge and expertise to develop a solution to the problem – or as the old saying goes “two heads are better than one.”
STEAMlabs are a high-energy, creative and collaborative event, with the opportunity for new solutions to be fast-tracked and/or funded for the next stage of development!
